This project renovates existing infrastructure from gore to gore, over 2,000 linear feet, creating a gateway to the El Paso International Airport and to Downtown.  Inspired by images of flight and movement, the project includes an array of 50'-tall, functional, illuminated wind turbines with customized radial armatures, paired with sequences of low illuminated sculptures, and arched planters hosting native trees and plants. The project promotes sustainability, incorporating green energy and Xeriscaping. Other aesthetic improvements include: painted column wraps, pier caps, paving patterns, stone cladding, new paint, landscape lighting and programmable LED lighting for celebrating the seasons and community events”
